Glide on snow beneath the beautiful Northern Lights
Welcome to the frozen north, where you’ll get to choose between surreal winter landscapes and endless summer light in one of the most beautiful countries on Earth. The ultimate retreat in both winter and summer, Finland holidays offer a little something for everyone.
A holiday in the north of Finland is quietly striking. Countless lakes, thickly forested plains and snowy peaks draw visitors from all over the world. In winter, the skies are pure and crisp. Our guides can take you to the solitary northern reaches of Lapland, where you’ll see the strange and mysterious aurora borealis. Float below the heavens on an alternative Northern Lights experience near Rovaniemi where you can lie back on the ice to watch the world’s most dramatic light show.
Further south, Finland’s cities offer a grand mix of impressive architecture and pervasive culture. Their modern architecture complements their Art Nouveau buildings and blend seamlessly with traditional Finnish housing. Helsinki – the country’s coastal capital – has a young vibrancy that attracts visitors all year round. Meanwhile, the ski resort of Levi offers a more peaceful experience; if you’re lucky, you might be able to ski beneath the Northern Lights.
And for those who dare, there are Finland’s popular traditions to try out. Not content with saunas alone, the Finns sit in heated boxes before running outside to roll in the snow. This is just one of the quirky traditions that makes Finland so unique. Ice golf, anyone?
